Greetings readers I hope you all had a wonderful weekend 🙂 I have been responding to some questions that were asked of me from one of my social media platforms, and it is much needed to address during this time. I hope everyone will purchase my new book coming out soon ‘A Journey Of A Sapphire’ @aJourneyofaSapphire.com.. I was reading about narcissi tic individuals, did you know Narcissism is a mental disorder and the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s idealized self-image and attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where a young man named Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Generally speaking, a narcissist will have an exaggerated sense of self-importance. The condition is estimated to affect around 0.5% of the general population in the US, with up to 75% of those being men. The effects of the condition can range from having a mildly negative effect on those afflicted and those around them to potentially destroying numerous lives. Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Lacking Empathy, Conversation hogger, Self Importance should I go on 🙁 The narcissist will often feel as though they are the most important person in the room. They will feel as though their contributions are vital and that others simply will not be able to manage without them. They are happy to let others know of their perceived importance and expect others to fall into line. My book ‘A Journey Of A Sapphire” will have you crying, laughing and at the end you will be inspired 🙂 I had to tell my story and I hope to Inspire other Jewels to keep going, never let your obstacles and challenges become someone else light !
Know when you are either involved or your friend is a narcissus in my opinion, and do not be afraid either these are life lessons that builds our character, confidence and self esteem 🙂 The narcissist feels it is important to always give others the impression that they are highly successful. They feel the need to be seen in expensive cars and will often only consider living in high-brow addresses. Their clothes have to be brand name designs, they have to go to the best hairdressers, and they have to let people know all about it. I am sure everyone has came across this type of behavior even with high profiled individuals who always want the world to know they are on top. If you would read about who are the leading women billionaires, the news would only glamorize who they want you to worship right? did you know their are over 15 women billionaires residing in the USA Hum…. Yes their is and I salute everyone of them 🙂 some you would not know (Why) their ego’s mean nothing compared to their Integrity and that is important readers ! Most of the time, it is easy to spot the narcissist in the room. They are the ones who are working the crowd, loudly sharing fabulous stories that convey a sense of importance and accomplishment so that they can feel admired. Someone behaving like this tends to send out a clear signal to those around them that they are not approachable or compassionate. Could there be other people in the room with those same exaggerated motivations for admiration and importance, yet possibly harder to identify? Yes, in fact, there could be someone close to you who is a narcissist but shows up in less obvious ways. It is absolutely vital to protect your mental well being.

“When I look at narcissism through the vulnerability lens, I see the shame-based fear of being ordinary. I see the fear of never feeling extraordinary enough to be noticed, to be lovable, to belong, or to cultivate a sense of purpose.”
